Benjamin Pavard, the French international defender, confirmed that his goal is to stay with Bayern Munich, denying speculation that he will leave Bavaria in the summer, adding Thursday: “I never said I wanted to leave.”
The right-back’s contract with his club expires in 2024, which has led to speculation that he may be ready to move to the Premier League or return to France in the summer.
In an interview with the German newspaper “Sport 1” published Thursday, Pavard said: “I am not the person who leaves the ship in the middle of the journey.”
And reports indicated that Bayern had received an offer from Inter, Italy, in the winter transfer market at the beginning of the year, to obtain the services of the 2018 world champion, and it was rejected.
And the 26-year-old continued: “I know very well that I am in a big club where everything is excellent. I am very comfortable here and I love the fans. I hope we can achieve more things together this season.”
Pavar will miss the second leg of the Champions League final against Paris Saint-Germain, France, next Wednesday, after he was sent off in stoppage time during his team’s 1-0 first-leg victory in Paris for receiving a second yellow card after a foul on Argentine Lionel Messi.
